Sport plays an enormous part in many students’ schooling lives and all too often highly-skilled students are left to pursue their sporting talents beyond the school gates. At St Catherine’s students have the chance to be selected and participate in the excellence program. The Sports Excellence Program is an elite school club that is offered to students during their Secondary Years. The Sports Excellence Program endeavors to help students achieve existing sporting goals and provide support for them to reach new achievements. Sports Excellence Programs are offered at many prestigious schools throughout Australia and prove to be an outstanding opportunity for students.
What is the Sports Excellence Program?
A Sports Excellence Program is a selective program for students in secondary school who are very interested in extending their sporting achievements. Many students are dedicated to success through sport and often spend many hours each week improving their fitness and skills. This program is aimed at supporting their efforts and encouraging them to continue to pursue their goals through the confusing time of adolescence.
The program is an opportunity for students to train, learn more about the physiology of their bodies, be guided and motivated to achieve success, and identify ways that they can prepare themselves for upcoming sports competitions. The program focuses on assisting students in setting sporting goals and utilises a variety of training methods to improve fitness. Whilst partaking in the sports excellence program, students will be encouraged and motivated by guest speakers and high-achieving athletes. The most important value that students learn in the program is that sport and exercise are fun.
The selection process includes students filling in an application form and then going through an interview process. Candidates will then be selected from there. Students can re-apply each year for the Sports Excellence Program which assists not just with training and fitness, but also nutrition.
